A Poet’s Plea

waiting for the perusal of a poem so deep

endlessly waiting forever to keep

its form, its sense, so exactly placed

its tone, its pace, so perfectly spaced

only its meaning is such

that if read in too much rush

you miss, what is

between the lines

so very fine

only you yourself can read

and see meaning out of these
